Allay's Compassionate Companions bring comfort to our patients and relief for their caregivers by offering a supportive presence, a listening ear and a helping hand.

When visiting, volunteers may offer to play music or a game, read to the patient, listen to his/her stories and memories, sit with a patient outside or take him/her for a walk, or offer assistance with non-medical tasks. There are also times when volunteers may simply sit quietly while holding one's hand, letting the patient know that he or she is not alone.

Allay's Compassionate Companions profoundly affect the quality of our patients' lives by helping those with a life-limiting illness make the very best of the time he or she has left.

The amount of time you give is flexible and scheduled around your availability. We do take into account your location to assign patient visits that are within or near your own community.

Hospice Companions receive training regarding the philosophy of hospice, the role of the volunteer and other staff members, as well as, helpful skills for meaningful visits with hospice patients and their families. New volunteer training can be completed both virtually and/or in-person.

Note: At this time, in-person visits are limited due to the pandemic. However, we anticipate there will be a great need for trained hospice volunteers once Covid-19 visitation restrictions are lifted. Inquire NOW for information on how you can get started on your road to becoming a future hospice volunteer or check out our "volunteer from home" opportunities.

Mission Statement

Allay Hospice consistently strives to provide the best, most compassionate care that can be experienced through the last phase of life's journey. Our goal is to ensure that those with a life-limiting illness live each day to the fullest in comfort and dignity. At Allay, we are committed to taking care of our patients and families as we would our own.

Description

Hospice is not a place, but a special way of caring that promotes one's quality of life and death with dignity. When medicine cannot provide a cure, Allay Hospice offers patients and their families the comfort, compassion and assistance necessary to maintain the best possible quality of life.

Allay is a locally owned hospice with offices in Brookfield, Jackson & Waterford to serve all communities of Southeastern Wisconsin.

*Our volunteers work side by side with Allay's experienced hospice team in providing comfort and care when it is needed most. For all of our volunteer opportunities, the amount of time you give is flexible and assignments are based on your availability and location; we do our best to assign volunteers within or near their own community.
